Spring/Summer 2016: Don’t Fear the Flare!

Whether you’ve never been a lover of flares or you’re more than willing to give them a go for another season, there’s lots of ways to style the beloved 70s trend. It doesn’t always need to be boho chic, nor do they need to be paired with a fringed handbag. Those are optional.

Flared jeans can become a wardrobe staple and if you invest in a good pair at the right length, you can wear them with your trusty trainers, comfy ankle boots or favourite heels.

So how would you wear your flares when going on a simple trip to the park? You want to be comfortable but still look stylish. Keep it simple, pair them with a bright top and a comfy pair of trainers. By wearing a below hip length jacket, you will even the look out and keep it on the casual side. And you’ll be kept warm and dry in the spring showers. The key here is comfort and a splash of colour.

Do you always try and set aside a night each month for you and the special person in your life to indulge in a date night? Fed up wearing the same old thing or fancy a change from wearing a dress? Opt for flared jeans in a deep black and you open yourself up to a whole load of new looks.

Pair your black flares with a detailed top and a simple pair of heels, then layer on a cape style jacket and a funky handbag and you have yourself a great look for date night. Not only that but you will feel comfortable and your choice of coat will keep you warm when you decide to end the night with cocktails outside…

The practicality of your weekend outfit doesn’t need to get in the way of looking stylish and on trend. A simple addition to your wardrobe in the form of a pair of stone wash flares will allow you to find new life in existing pieces you own.

A basic top, comfy pair of ankle boots and a simple, inexpensive trench coat are all you need to create a trendy, relaxed outfit that will see you through your weekend plans. Whether it be a supermarket sweep, play dates or out for a family lunch; this very simple but very stylish outfit fits all occasions.

Don’t fear the flare. Have fun with it and try on different styles and colours until you find what suits you best. Make sure you buy a length that will suit your preferred style of shoe. The last thing you want is to have to buy heels to suit your flares if you’re usually a keen wearer of trainers or loafers.

Enjoy the new Spring Summer trend…
